robs medicare, robs it. i heard that he said that in florida last night. mr. president, i don't know how else to say this, but that's just totally false. that's untrue. first, nonpartisan economists have certified that the president's health care plan, obamacare, has strengthened the medicare program, extends its solvency by eight years. if we were robbing the medicare program, how could it extend its solvency by eight more years i? the affordable care act doesn't rob makers it makes the program more efficient, more reliable. it saves $700 billion, not from beneficiaries, not from recipients who are on medicare, but from overpayments to private insurance companies, providers, pharmaceuticals, cracking down on fraud, waste, and abuse. and now what's really interesting is that the ryan budget has exactly the same savings in his budget as obamacare has in his plan, in the plan that we passed here. the same, exact, to the dollar, written the same way. as president clinton said, you know, you got to give him one thing; it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. ryan put i

because the debate we're having about whether medicare will be privatized fundamentally affects seniors. the majority of seniors are women. so when you're talking about women who are becoming 65 and are wondering is medicare going to become a voucher system, that's really important. so what we're seeing here is a defining of what democrats stand for. we stand for equal pay for equal work we stand for a safety net for seniors. we stand for opportunity for all american families to put every child in this country to reach their god given potential and fundamentally that also means being able to make decisions about your body it's not just about what todd akin said but it's about the beginning of the congress, h.r.-1 was the first bill to take away a safety net for women. h.r.-3 made abortion illegal. these the kind of things that the efforts were being made in these pieces of legislation. >> and the defunding of planned parenthood and the idea that it is a one issue organization. it's about reproductive rights and the myriad of irk shoes that come up for women in that area and the idea tha
